Stanley Pickle is made up of still photographs run together, very old-school, and it works well with its clockwork theme. Here you go, I thought you might like it:

Stanley Pickle was shot frame by frame on two sets and two locations, using a stills camera and Dragon Stop-Motion Software. Here's an interview with the director, Victoria Mather:
